The Suicide Squad (HBOMax):

Supervillains Harley Quinn, Bloodsport, Peacemaker and a collection of nutty cons at Belle Reve prison join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X as they are dropped off at the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.

THIS is what we waited for?! A solid “MEH” at best. The opening scene turned me off immediately. Some of the characters are “WTF were you actually thinking?” However, it then got pretty awesome, only to regress, then come back to awesomeness, then regress again. I will hide a spoiler as to the actual plot below. I get that it’s a comic book movie, but I dare say that the first one is on par with this one, all things considered. Non-spoiler alert, the first one had a better plot, and that’s saying something. As for characters, the ratio of awesome characters:sh***y characters was about the same, but this new one just has more in number.

I feel sorry for anyone who paid money to see this (this is free w/the HBOMax subscription)
Starro is the Borg from Star Trek: The Next Generation. THAT’S THE BEST YOU CAN COME UP WITH?! A 25-year old (or so) idea???[/hide]

[hide]Starro The Conqueror debuted in DC Comics in 1960. Long before Star Trek had Borg. FWIW[/hide]
